Why do men find blonde women so very attractive?
Carole Jahme, THE GUARDIAN
Sexual selection would certainly have been a powerful driving force behind evolution in northern Europeans. Late Palaeolithic females in southern Europe and Africa could forage for food and feed themselves and their infants, with males occasionally supplementing their diet with meat. In northern Europe, however, where ice covered much of the terrain, people were dependent on meat. Bands of men went in search of herds of prehistoric bison or mammoth. These hunting trips were dangerous, resulting in many fatalities.
It has been suggested that as a result this was a time of intense sexual rivalry between females due to their numbers exceeding those of males.3 At any given time far more fertile women than men were left unmated, so females had to compete for mates and for a favourable share of meat. (No pun intended?) The theory is that when given the choice, Pelaeolithic males chose blondes, who stood out from their rivals. (Or were blondes simply sluts? Now that’s genius!)
Evo Psych: Always ridiculously entertaining.
Let’s see; we’re presuming that one woman – one man “marriage” was standard in northern Europe during the Late Paleolithic (who new that Christianity was so old!) Monogamy was strictly followed or enforced, and all those “leftover” women found that there were no males who would forgo their strict vows of monagamy and satisfy “brunettes” behind the big rock at the edge of town. Contrary to today’s rampant adultery, males had no interest in “bonus” sex or passing their “seed” to more children.
